The Unique Boutique

In this uplifting new series, The Unique Boutique opens for business, welcoming customers who can’t find what they need on the high street and offering fabulous new looks to a wide range of people who aren’t served by mainstream fashion.

Channel 4’s highly skilled inclusive fashion designers, stylists, tailors and dressmakers – who each identify as disabled – dare to do what the clothing industry doesn’t: make bespoke and beautiful outfits to fit every type of body, all in their custom-built shop.

Trailblazing adaptive designer Victoria, stylist and model Triple Minor (also known as Georgie), fashionista and body confidence coach Natalie and celebrity stylist David hear each person’s candid story about the physical, psychological and financial challenges they’ve faced finding clothing from conventional retailers, before creating an especially adapted outfit to match each person’s individual taste and needs.

In this first episode, three customers arrive for fabulously-fitted outfits. Prom queen Emma-Jane craves a dress that won’t catch on her wheels as she sashays down the catwalk. Adaptive designer Victoria hits the brief with a showstopping gown packed with innovative access features. Separated dad Huw wants a new look to help rekindle his love life and a style that works for him as an ambulatory wheelchair user.

Stylist David assembles an ensemble with clever adaptations in a bid to boost Huw’s confidence to date again. Meanwhile, cancer patient Lisa has lost her style mojo after undergoing treatment, and her body changes mean her wardrobe is no longer fit for purpose. Team Unique Boutique soon have her feeling glamorous again with a fabulously bespoke new outfit, including a surprise reversion of Lisa’s favourite coat.
